WWE had plans to do a lot of touring in 2020. Then COVID-19 showed up and shut everything down. It is also keeping them from leaving the USA.

WWE recently issued statement to announce that their July mini-tour of Japan is not taking place as scheduled. Those July 2nd and July 4th dates were supposed to be WWE’s first live event since they abruptly froze touring in March. There was no return date to Japan given.

While it’s likely that WWE will re-schedule those Japanese dates, it also gives an indication that July is too far out to start thinking about substantial live events again.

The company is cancelling dates when some are hoping that they are building a schedule.


At this time Ringside News has learned there is no serious talk about scheduling more events. They do remain hopeful and are keeping a constant eye on the situation.

The company is also well aware of a potential second wave of the novel coronavirus that could stop their plans if they jump the gun and return to normal earlier than they should.

At this time, the next NXT live event is a Florida house show on July 10th. The next scheduled WWE live event is on July 12th in Rockford, Illinois.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
